Education Update: Nicole Toomey Davis reported for Barb Derricott. Nicole attended the
School Board Meeting in September. She reported how there was a real lack of learning and acceptance
of looking at new ideas in education. The extended day Kindergarten Plan was talked about that
contained a budget increase of 7M dollars; the attitude of the board was to just ask for the money from
the Legislature (or us the tax payers) without any talk or consideration on how they could find the
money themselves within their own budget. The information that Florida Gov. Jeb Bush shared about
the “Florida Miracle” was dismissed and not really given any consideration. She found the state school
board to be more defensive of new ideas instead of looking to see what they can learn from others.
State School Board Meetings are held on the 1st Friday of the month, anyone is welcome to go up and
help sit in and hear what is going on. If you decide you want to go be sure to give Barb Derricott a call
